Last Update: Monday, January 21, 2008
WARNING: Letters requesting help to regain funds are not written by former country leaders, nor their widows, nor members of their family.
01:Example of a 419 blitzkrieg.
02: Now you can "hear" what 419'ers really sound like (right out of a zombie "B" movie), PLUS have a look at a phony Nigerian Scam bank site.@
03: Fraud Alert Read a sample of what is being sent around to churches. Warn your Minister, Pastor, Priest, Rabbi, or Imam! It is very doubtful that this letter was written by a Moslem, former or otherwise. For more information on why I say this, read this article from the Fraud Aid.com Nigerian Desk.
05: Do you own a hotel? If so, be on the watch for this one!
06: That email you received is not from an investment house broker!
SURVIVOR WATCH: Expect to see Nigerian Scam Letters appear from so-called relatives of the following
Thu 9/19/02 - Abidjan, Ivory Coast - General Robert Guei, killed in military uprising
Thu 9/19/02 - Abidjan, Ivory Coast - Emile Boga Doudou, killed in military uprising
Thu 9/26/02 - Dakar, Senegal - ferry carrying 800 passengers and crew sank off coast of Senegal on its way to West Africa
Fall 2002 - War in the Ivory Coast (Côte d'Ivoire) will bring a whole new rash of letters out of the woodwork. We should start seeing them hit email boxes by the middle of December or earlier.
Spring 2003 - War in Iraq. Phony survivor letters began hitting mailboxes before the war was even over.
